Boise implements voluntary green building code.
As part of an initiative to improve the built environment, the city of Boise, ID, has created a green building code for commercial and residential projects. While municipal properties will be required to use the new standard, it will be voluntary for other developers.
The new code includes sections that focus on areas such as site development and land use, water conservation, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality.
Projects that meet the green code will receive expedited permit processing and access to the city's project management program. Upon verification that the project is functioning as designed by a neutral building commissioning agent, sites will also be awarded a monument plaque designating the location as a "Green Pillar."
